CHRISTIE’S , October 22nd, 2013: A photography Auction to commemorate the 40th anniversary of Comunità Nuova Onlus
In the occasion of the 40th anniversary of Comunità Nuova Onlus , October 22, an auction will be held at Christie’s in Milan.
62 internationally renowned authors have donated their photography to support the association in Milan, chaired by Don Gino Rigoldi .
The evening profits will be donated to the educational community Barrhouse children of Milan, a branch run by Comunità Nuova.
The Barrhouse gives shelter for children of age between five and thirteen, that come from parents with serious problems and unable to look after their family. The association takes care of these homeless children, after a sentence decree from Juvenile Court , to exclude them from their family.
Due to the severe conditions on their arrival, Barrhouse offers younger guests a warm, protective and reassuring environment, which allows them to live and express their status of children. The daily objective of Barrhouse educators is to help these children to recover lost serenity, that in some cases, serenity have been never experienced by some subjects, making them feel loved by introducing them to a social and school life, making the best to protect them from the burden of responsibility and disorder’s implications of family dynamics.
The auction will be held at Christie’s Italy on Tuesday, October 22nd, 2013 from 7pm at Palazzo Clerici hall of Tiepolo – Via Clerici 5 , Milan.
The works will be on a preview event Saturday 19 and Sunday 20 October 2013, at art spaces of Frigoriferi Milanese ( Via Piranesi 10, Milan ), home of Open Care.
The opening, curated by Manuela Cigliutti, will take place saturday, October 19, at 7pm and there will be a debate with, Father Gino Rigoldi, President of the Comunità Nuova Onlus, Gianni Berengo Gardin, Denis Curti and Grazie Neri, who will talk about their experiences in social photography.
